    I've only seen Kunitskaya fight once before and what I saw tells me this is just going to be another one of those Cyborg fights where she'll end it whenever she wants to.

    I'm still disappointed we're missing out on Holloway/Frankie once again but Ortega isn't a bad replacement. Really looking forward to this fight.

    They're really pushing O’Malley. I didn't think he looked great in his debut but he seems to have potential.

    The women's division could use some help so it's good to see Zingano back. There's a lot of hype around Dern as well but apparently she still needs a lot of work on her striking.

    Dodson/Munhoz should be a good one on the prelims.

    Hopefully Cat looks good... She needs a win to get back into the mix.

    Not overly pumped for this card though. I see Cyborg walking through Yana...

    I think Struve beats Arlovski as well.

    Yana Kunitskaya is a Jackson-Wink fighter, so i guess they're gonna continue off Holm's previous strategy: Pretend to look effective and hope the judges get fooled.

    Edgar vs Ortega is interesting. Have my doubts Ortega's guard is good enough to shake off Edgar's terrifying top game. Ortega's sub game is all about getting the neck from a standing position, whether in the clinch or in a wild brawl. Edgar will have to make to sure he doesn't shoot recklessly and leave a neck, but in general i dont think he should fear Ortega's ground game.

    I wish they wouldn't make fights the headliner just because it's for a belt. Edgar-Ortega is a really good matchup and should absolutely be five rounds, easily could've been the case. Struve-Alrovski should be interesting too, but I think Struve should take it pretty easy. I always like Struve's fights fwiw.

    Good depth on this one, but not expecting much in the main event.

    What a ****ty year for the UFC so far. There's almost no one left that is worth watching anymore. Everyone's either injured, suspended or waiting for the pay day.

    Lombard clearly landed that after the bell. That should be a DQ.

    Dollaway still rocked.

    Dollaway is in lala land. No doubt he's concussed.

    ref should have stepped in between the fighters.

    but whatever, it's such a Lombard way to end a fight.

    I have it 29-28 for Munhoz but it's a close fight that could go either way.

    A lot of head down and running forward from Dern. Hasn't cost her so far but that's something she'll definitely need to fix.

    Dern fights like she's Rousey in all the wrong ways. Very similar how their footwork are and how they eat punches. hell, their fight kit looks the same lol

    Can't believe Yoder survived there.

    29-28 for Dern. I had it even going into the third round and the takedown probably sealed it.

    Dern won that round, Yoder second, it will come down to who won the 1st round.

    Dern better sort out her stand up or she'll get KO'd regularly.
